Biological Measures for Prognosing and Monitoring of Persistent Concussive Symptoms in Early and Middle Adolescents: Center Without Walls (PCS-EMA CWOW) (U54 Clinical Trial Not Allowed)

RFA
Thursday, February 7, 2019

U54
RFA-NS-19-022

Funding Opportunity Purpose

This Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) is aimed at discovering, determining the selectivity and sensitivity, and externally validating biological measures to be used for assessing, prognosing and monitoring recovery of youth who either clinically present with or are at risk for developing prolonged/persistent concussive symptoms following exposure to repetitive head impacts and/or concussion. Resultant biological measures should be incorporated into risk stratification algorithms to inform clinical care and patient stratification for future clinical trials. A critical feature of this FOA includes the broad sharing of clinical, neuroimaging, physiological, and biospecimen data to further advance research in the area of persistent concussive symptoms in children ages 9 - 14.

Human Three-Dimensional Cell Model Systems for Alzheimer's Disease-Related Dementias (ADRDs) (UG3/UH3 Clinical Trial Not Allowed)

RFA
Tuesday, January 29, 2019
Friday, March 15, 2019
UG3/UH3
RFA-NS-19-027

Funding Opportunity Purpose

This FOA invites applications that propose to develop, characterize and validate innovative human cellular model systems that recapitulate phenotypic, mechanistic and neuropathological hallmarks of Alzheimers Disease-Related Dementias (ADRDs). Model systems will be expected to capture the complex, multi-faceted proteinopathies and/or vascular pathology observed in ADRDs, with multiple cell types represented in each model. Years 3-5 will focus on the extensive characterization and perturbation of the cellular model systems. The overall goal of this FOA is to establish next generation human cellular model systems for ADRDs to serve as tools to interrogate molecular disease mechanisms and identify potential therapeutic targets.

Comparative Effectiveness Research in Clinical Neurosciences (UG3/UH3 Clinical Trial Not Allowed)

PAR
Monday, January 28, 2019
Saturday, January 8, 2022
UG3/UH3
PAR-19-171

Funding Opportunity Purpose

The purpose of this Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) is to encourage grant applications for investigator-initiated comparative effectiveness research (CER) to the National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke (NINDS). The study must address questions within the mission and research interests of the NINDS and may evaluate preventive strategies, diagnostic approaches, or interventions including drugs, biologics, and devices, or surgical, behavioral, and rehabilitation therapies. Information about the mission and research interests of the NINDS can be found at the NINDS website (https://www.ninds.nih.gov/). Studies proposed should provide a cost-effective means of collecting data with a meaningful bearing on current clinical practice. Awards made under this FOA will initially support a milestone-driven planning phase (UG3) for up to 2 years, with possible transition to a observational study phase of up to five years (UH3). Only UG3 projects that have met the scientific milestones and feasibility requirements may transition to the UH3 phase. The UG3/UH3 application must be submitted as a single application, following the instructions described in this FOA. The UG3 phase for observational studies will permit both scientific and operational planning activities. Scientific planning activities include small-scale data collection to assess the feasibility and/or acceptability of data collection, storage, and planned analyses. Operational planning activities include, at a minimum, development of recruitment and retention strategies, case report forms, data management system and other tools for data and quality management. The UH3 phase of the award will support the conduct of investigator-initiated observational study.

Progression Markers for Cognitive Impairment in Parkinson's Disease Dementia (R01 Clinical Trial Not Allowed)

R01
PAR-19-170

Funding Opportunity Purpose

This purpose of this FOA is to identify risk factors for dementia progression in PDD. Applicants must have access to well-characterized populations of PDD patients that have been followed longitudinally that they can continue to follow with clinical assessments and biospecimen collection until autopsy. Research should propose to identify clinical, pathological and/or biospecimen factors that predict which patients will develop cognitive impairment and/or dementia.

Development and Validation of Advanced Mammalian Models for Alzheimers Disease-Related Dementias (ADRD) (R61/R33 Clinical Trial Not Allowed)

PAR
Wednesday, January 23, 2019
Friday, March 15, 2019
R61/R33
PAR-19-167

Funding Opportunity Purpose

This funding opportunity announcement (FOA) encourages research to develop, characterize and validate innovative mammalian models that recapitulate molecular, cellular, neuropathological, behavioral and cognitive hallmarks of the Alzheimers Disease-Related Dementias (ADRD), including Lewy body dementia (LBD), vascular contributions to cognitive impairment and dementia (VCID), frontotemporal degeneration (FTD) and mixed etiology dementias (MED). Models will be expected to exhibit a broad range of features characteristic of the dementia disorder being modeled, including a mid- to late-life onset consistent with the human disorder, multiple age-dependent neuropathological processes and the associated behavioral, cognitive and/or physiological abnormalities. For each proposed mammalian model, a relevant suite of phenotypes that inform human ADRD disease progression and mechanisms should be characterized across the full life span or, for longer-living mammalian models, throughout the disease-relevant stages of adulthood. The goal of this FOA is to establish multi-dimensional mammalian models for ADRD to serve as tools to interrogate molecular disease mechanisms and identify therapeutic targets.

U.S.-China Program for Biomedical Collaborative Research (R01 Clinical Trial Optional)
